"Viewing Europe from the Outside" reexamines the narrative portrayal of cultural encounters between East and West in English and French Orientalist discourse. It focuses, in particular, on the eighteenth-century satirical travel account and the nineteenth-century literary travelogue. Through a close reading of five texts, it defines the monological, dialogical, and parodic uses of the Other as three forms of encounters that both provide structure for and participate in a self-reflective culture critique.
